Why windsurfing…

Success Guaranteed or Get a Free Session

Managed to fit us in for a private windsurf lesson for my 3 kids at very late notice, they totally loved it, very friendly instructor and safe environment. Shame we don't have time for wakeboarding tomorrow. Or SUP. Or Laser sailing...

Matt Bush

We were on holiday in the area with our 2 teenage daughters. we always try something new whilst on Holidays; something a little out of our usual comfort zone and this year it was an hour's windsurfing.

none of us had tried this previously and we had a private session with a tutor, followed by an additional hour for us to use the equipment.

Our tutor was lovely and extremely patient as we initially struggled with nerves and balancing on the boards. however, we had a great time and really enjoyed this as a family afternoon together.

Hove lagoon is agreat place to learn windsurfing because the water is so shallow. Being on the coast, the wind is pretty reliable. The team who work there are enthusiastic, friendly and helpful

Calum

Hove Lagoon is the perfect place if you are new to water sports and want to get out on the water and learn a new skill - a range of courses and taster sessions are on offer, in a safe, controlled environment so you don't need to be worried about getting swept out onto the open sea when the wind gets under your sail !

Independent water quality test results from 2017  testing

Total Colibacteria

Faecal Colibacteria

Faecal Enterococci

  • Natural algae growth occurs in the Lagoon. This algae can look unpleasant particularly when it blows to one corner of the Lagoon. It is harmless. It is NOT blue/green algae that fresh water lakes can suffer from.
  • Sometimes there is a smell. This smell is caused by the natural process of the algae.
  • Brighton and Hove City Council treat the water with an organic substance to help suppress the algae growth.
  • The water in the Lagoon is sea water rather than fresh water which prevents some common water quality issues that lakes suffer from.
  • The Lagoon is topped up with fresh seawater every few days.
  • The Lagoon is very shallow so the sun can penetrate to the bottom.
  • There is a high level of evaporation and leakage in the Lagoon.
  • The sea water that goes into the Lagoon meets all bathing test requirements.

Changing Bookings

When you make a booking with us we assign staff and equipment to deliver the booking. That means we are unable to offer that space to anyone else.

If you cancel that space we are likely to incur a loss.  We will have already made commitments to staff and we may have turned away other bookings. We are unable to get insurance that covers us for this loss.

We therefore do not offer refunds for cancellations. If we did not do this we would have to put up our prices for everyone.

Our cancellation policy applies in all circumstances including no shows, illness, relocation, transport failure and bereavement.

Course Cancellation Insurance
You can take out insurance to cover the cost of your course against cancellation through CancelSure. Guide cost is £12 for the first £100 of cover and then £6 per additional £100 of cover.

Our Advice

  • If you pay by credit card your cancellation may be covered by your credit card provider.
  • Consider taking out course cancellation insurance.
  • Your holiday insurance may cover you for course where you stay on our boats.
